death has many soundtracks.

the steady bass

of fired bullets

the whisper

of knife through air

less subtle

yet no less lethal

the discordant orchestra

of a car accident

cacophony of sirens

blending with wails

the sound of a hospital room,

it is too forced

too false

too silent

to be music

yet it makes for the perfect playlist

for this

intricate

fragile

fatal

dance with death.
